Games sure are getting big, with CVG revealing that the Xbox 360 release of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow will come on two DVDs.
The reason? It's a big game. Head honcho of MercurySteam Dave Cox stated that the game's length is around twenty-four hours, with a huge variety of art assets that are rarely reused, the latter being the likely culprit for all that data.
But not everybody out there likes to get up and swap disks, so MercurySteam have offered a solution that many will already be familiar with; installation. Xbox 360 gamers will be able to install the first disk to their drive, allowing to play the full title off the second disk.
Some may think that with Hideo Kojima's involvement in the project the double disk release may be a result of cinematics, but that is not so, with confirmation that most cinematics are quite short, with the longest being the final scene coming in at around 14 minutes.
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow is set for a release later this year.
